Neighborhood Report: It's Kips Bay or the Highway

The Post's Janet Huege takes on the Herculean task of making Kips Bay sound cool. Okay, there's no subway, but there's that huge movie theater strip mall and the frat bars on 3rd Avenue and a Bellevue shelter. Still not sold? How about the mammoth I.M. Pei-designed Kips Bay Towers between 1st and 2nd on 30th through 33rd? According to Lisa Lebowitz, a stay-at-home mom who lives somewhere in the private-garden-endowed complex: "If you're going to raise kids in New York, it's either Kips Bay or out." Guess that settles it.
